US-based tutoring service Sylvan Learning is marking its presence in the mobile space by tapping tech company Fingerprint to create SylvanPlay, an educational mobile games network consisting of eight educational apps for kids.
The iOS and Android games, aimed at kids in grades one to four, are designed to build critical skills in reading, math, science, geography and strategic thinking.
Exclusive SylvanPlay titles include Critter Cruise, which teaches math and language learning, the numbers-inspired Battle Station and Angle Asteroids, Pizza Party, which focuses on fractions, the language-based Sushi Scramble and the science-themed Get Rocky.
The network, which is comprised of both free and paid content ranging from US$.99 to US$4.99, will add new games on an ongoing basis, and content will soon target tweens as well. However, all apps are free for current Sylvan customers.
This marks the learning company’s latest effort to reach kids on the screen. Recently, it moved its curriculum to iPads with the SylvanSync platform, which uses personalized screen-based lessons.
